We present an accurate method to include arbitrary singular distributions of forces in the lattice Boltzmann formulation of hydrodynamics. We validate our method with several examples involving Stokeslet, stresslet, and rotlet singularities, finding excellent agreement with analytical results. A minimal model for sedimenting particles is presented using the method. In the dilute limit, this model has accuracy comparable to, but computational efficiency much greater than, algorithms that explicitly resolve the size of the particles.
